You are here



At MHRP, it’s not enough to have a job. We want you to build an exceptional career, with challenging projects, continuous learning, and leadership opportunities in HIV prevention and world health. You can be a part of a team that will advance the HIV field as we search for an effective vaccine, and help save lives in Africa through HIV prevention and treatment programs.

When you join MHRP, you are joining a dedicated group of internationally recognized scientists that has made major contributions to the HIV field. MHRP has many successes to be proud of, especially our RV144 vaccine trial in Thailand that showed—for the first time ever—that it is possible for an HIV vaccine to reduce HIV infection in humans.


Diversity of thought helps create a dynamic team and work environment leading to strong collaborations with key partners, innovative research, and cutting-edge science that help advance the HIV field.

Strong Science

Our strong science program and collaborative approach have helped drive our progress in HIV research and vaccine development in Africa and Thailand.

The military’s longstanding presence and strong relationships with the partners, host governments and militaries have helped enable MHRP to effectively develop world-class scientific infrastructures and long-term relationships needed for sustainable research efforts.

We work in closely with many U.S. agencies and organizations including the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the NIH. Our programs have developed robust in-country relationships with CDC, USAID, Peace Corps, and other stakeholders and have built powerful partnership with host country civil society, government, academia, and non-governmental organizations.

International Locations

As an MHRP employee, you may have the opportunity to work at or travel to one of our many established world-class clinical and basic research platforms in Africa and Asia to experience the program first-hand.


At MHRP, the expectations of our professionals are high and we reward that commitment with industry-competitive compensation and benefit packages. The majority of our team is hired through and employed by the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (HJF), a non-profit that supports military medical research. Many of our international employees are hired through the HJF international subsidiary, HJFMRI. In addition, we have many leaders and scientists who are Army active duty and Army civilians.

HJF provides flexible and generous benefit choices including comprehensive health, vision and dental insurance and a matching retirement program.
